I may know what happened I had a private window open checking my bank. I may have clicked on my favorites after signing out ... not sure .. maybe I went back and forth between active window and private window more than once.

It is the only thing I can think which might have happened.

That would definitely do it! Those "private windows" or incognito mode cause your browser to not save cookies, thus you can't stay logged in with that.

Knew it was probably something I did. When I first sent the msg I did not remember the bank episode. But on reflection..........

Well, I'd never even heard of a "private" window. So, what is that? Inquiring minds want to know! Hilarious!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

On Foxfire, I open a "New Private window" from the file menu. It is supposed to not save browsing history. I did not know it blocked cookies, but overall not a bad thing.

Glad it was nothing big! Smiling

Not saving history is great for a browser, but I hate when my brain gets stuck in that mode! Hilarious!

Well, well. Learn something new every day. I'd never noticed that Private Window option. Thanks!

Just remember to sign out --- and not click back and forth -- unless your memory is better than is mine. Hilarious! Hilarious!
